Huffington Post: At Secretive Meeting, Tech CEOs And Top Republicans Commiserate, Plot To Stop Trump
Huffington Post ^ | 03/07/2016 | Ryan Grim,

"Billionaires, tech CEOs and top members of the Republican establishment flew to a private island resort off the coast of Georgia this weekend for the American Enterprise Institute's annual World Forum, according to sources familiar with the secretive gathering.

The main topic at the closed-to-the-press confab? How to stop Republican front-runner Donald Trump.

Apple CEO Tim Cook, Google co-founder Larry Page, Napster creator and Facebook investor Sean Parker, and Tesla Motors and SpaceX honcho Elon Musk all attended. So did Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), political guru Karl Rove, House Speaker Paul Ryan, GOP Sens. Tom Cotton (Ark.), Cory Gardner (Colo.), Tim Scott (S.C.), Rob Portman (Ohio) and Ben Sasse (Neb.), who recently made news by saying he "cannot support Donald Trump."

“Arthur Sulzberger, the publisher of The New York Times, was there, too, a Times spokeswoman confirmed.”

Why is Pinch trying to help bring down Trump if, as the GOPe oligarchs, plutocrats and rich campaign “donors” claim, Trump will be slaughtered by Hillary? Shouldn’t Pinch be trying to PROMOTE Trump in that case?

Vote Trump. I can not believe anyone would support this group of misfits. They need to be kicked out of office. We are not electing a minister but a leader who can fix this country before it is s too late.

They don’t fear Cruz. He is one of them, and a poor one without any power, at that.

The only one they fear is Trump, because he is rich and powerful and has many connections. He’s the one that poses the threat.

Although these people are pure scum, they are not stupid. Trump is very smart too. However, Trump is one man with his cadre of advisers against hundreds of very powerful men with many think tanks supporting them.

This sounds almost silly and tinfoil hat, but there are trillions of dollars at stake and everyone can now see the huge machine that is being spun up as we speak to defeat us, the American people!

I am really upset too .. but feel naïve because really, we all know this was going on.

Weren’t a couple of names on that list guys who came out in the past few days supporting Cruz ? Or am I nuts ?

It’s not about them not “wanting what is best for us”’s about complete & utter control of the populace so we do not stand in the way of their ongoing New World Order implementation.

These are all people richly profiting from the status quo. They ARE the establishment. They ought have a better argument than that Trump doesn’t seem “presidential”, or that he’s too “unstable” to have his finger on the nuclear button.

“Trump needs to post the link to this article on Twitter. He’s got to let his less informed voters know that there’s a massive effort underway by TPTB to stop him by whatever means necessary.”

I just emailed the link to this article to several friends.
Not all of them are on Twitter.

I understand your concern, but I have seen people who competed with Trump in business and they say he’s a good guy. I just saw a clip by Lawrence O’Donnell, a notoriously hateful man on MSNBC and he was shocked at how gracious Trump was even though O’Donnell had eviscerated Trump on television.

Right you are. They - the lying, stinking, despicable, thieving GOPee - are slithering lower than low with their Hitler memes and holding *secret* meetings such as this one, against Trump.

To see so many of the ones we thought were, maybe...hopefully, the good Cotton and Tim Scott selling out for the likes of Midge, Lyin Paul Ryno, etc is truly appalling.

This meeting and the politician attendees on this list need to:

Be posted wide and far. Go viral.

Be condemned by the other GOP candidates.

“2 sitting elected officials plotting to take out the Front Runner”

And no doubt we paid to fly them out there, plus security.

Yep. We paid for them to go plot against Trump who THEY made sign a pledge last year and they assured Trump they would treat him fairly. The RNC chairman is Paul Ryan’s best friend.

Come on. They people are crooks and laughing all the way to the bank. All they care about is gaining personal wealth and power for themselves and their friends and family.

DISGUSTING and we PAID for their lavish Trip over the weekend.

“Cruz is a NWO Globalist & Free Mason secret society member”

I voted for Cruz in the TX primary.

Will vote for Trump if he is the nominee DESPITE you being a complete clymer like so many Trumpkins. I’m sick and tired of seeing the pure drivel you and your kind spew here in an effort to defame Cruz, Freemasons, and others.

I wonder, if information like this ever gets any attention (which I doubt because they probably fear for their jobs - although I could see O’Reilly taking this on to some degree - he is more insulated by money and fame than are most tv reporters/commentators -> wouldn’t stop Lou Dobbs or Judge Jeanine Pirro though!!) would there be a revolt and a third party created ?

Then these despicable human beings could just have their Republicrat party right out in the open.

People are FOR Mr. Trump because they are smart, and realize he represents the last hope for America’s restoration.

Cruz is a dishonest, firmly-entrenched globalist, and immoral. He’s a most sneaky, slimy, smarmy, horrible creature.

Corporate fascists and GOP elites work together to protect their money interests. They ruthlessly go after anyone who threatens their power base.

This is being revealed now, and hopefully, by the Grace of God, (who uses all kinds of fallible men for His Purposes), there is time to defeat the bought and paid for candidates, like Cruz, Rubio, and Kasich.

Well the silver lining here, is that this was published on one of the most widely read news sites online, and not some obscure blog.

This report is going to get very wide exposure over the next week or so, because of that.

England is getting Huffington Post UK. Don't know where I saw it today. I thought about all those sophisticated liberal ladies sitting around a conference table. It was about making something better for kids.

All i can think of is you want to let as many get butchered as women choose, then you suddenly care about them when they are old enough to be brainwashed?

Turn them into little liberal clones. Actually it sounded like something maybe nice people might do for kids only they aren't nice people.
